Some things you’ll never understand until you get there

Think marriage, might end up with a decent pair

Contemplation the after not the before

The antes, wish I’d learn more

Tomorrow is promised, you just might not see it

By natural or ill will you ask for

A higher power to intercede it

Can serenity surface in calamity

The insuation is rest in peace

Father forgive them, for they know not what they do

It was a preparation, though real life happens after school

My thoughts is, you saw the gold streets

Why go back there where there’s no peace

We all have a part to play

Might end up being a short scene

Looking for answers to questions

Like the latest word search

Sympathy goes out cause we know
It hurts

Can’t come up with words no more

A few moments of silence

When you meet up with the other homies

Dap em for me, cause I ain’t ready yet

See you on the streets of Heaven

When the timings right

Rest in Paradise

– My 4 homies
